February is here and with it a new calendar page just waiting to be filled. I might have gone a teensy bit overboard... it looks like the art journal equivalent of Vegas *grin*

My girls decided to wear vinyl this month:
Even my guy is a little splashy with his jeweled flower and high contrast piping.
Some corner detail, the wings got the glossy treatment too. Restraint wasn't the tone of the page:
I think the celebratory mood of birthday/birthday/birthday/anniversary/Valentine's Day got me a little carried away.
On to the comparably restrained January~
Now that it's all filled out I absolutely love the size of the boxes. They're just perfect for jotting down a snippet about the day.
Yes, I have absolutely no idea what I did on January 3rd and 4th. My vision disturbances made typing near to impossible and without Twitter or Facebook I couldn't remember a bit about those days. See, it pays to write as you go.
I made the title by tacking down some ugly old alphabet stickers and then inking over top of them to change the tone a bit. Then I outlined the stickers with my Micron pen and peeled them off. The result is nicely understated; the letters stand out enough to be notice but don't take away too much from the background which was my favorite part.
I had all these travel and immigration themed acetate that I'd won in a prize box. Never knew what on earth to do with them. Then we got our citizenship this month and suddenly "immigration officer" was a great embellishment to have on hand.
